Should you suffer injuries arising from an accident at work which was not your fault, you can claim compensation. Such a claim may be against your employer or a third party.
Your employer has a legal obligation to ensure that you work in a safe environment and with safe work equipment. They must also take appropriate steps to avoid exposure to dangerous substances or where this is not possible provide suitable personal protective equipment.
As the law in this area is complex, it is important that you instruct a personal injury specialist with significant experience in accident at work claims to ensure that your claim is as sucessful as possible.
At Askews our personal injury solicitors have a wealth of experience in pursuing accident at work compensation claims arising from all types of accidents. Personal injury claims can usually be pursued on a ‘No Win No Fee’ basis so you can rest assured that there is no financial risk to you.
In addition you may be able to benefit from physiotherapy and rehabilitation services to aid your recovery and minimise your losses arising from the accident.
